Arabel Charlaff

Arabel is an accredited and experienced psychotherapist who works both privately and within the NHS. Before training as a therapist, she worked in publishing for over a decade as ghost-writer, editor and literary consultant.

She is highly experienced in working collaboratively with clients in both a literary and a therapeutic capacity, offering a unique combination of analytic insight and editorial expertise.

She is also the founder and director of Characters on the Couch, a service which matches writers with 'fiction therapists’, using psychoanalytic theory to help writers bring their characters to life.

She loves reading novels just as much as she loves reading Freud.
